Breast cancer can be found early

Being alert to any changes in your breasts and having exams and tests according to American Cancer Society guidelines for early detection, helps find breast changes early – when they are small. If the change is breast cancer, it’s important that it be found at the earliest possible stage, when it’s small, has not spread, and is easiest to treat.

For more detailed information on breast awareness, how to do a self-exam, and the American Cancer Society guidelines for early detection of breast cancer, please see our document called Breast Cancer: Early Detection.
